WEATHER: Wyandotte County could see largest snow storm this winter on Saturday

KANSAS CITY, KAN. ---- The National Weather Service is predicting a significant snow-fall event for Wyandotte County and the rest of the Kansas City metro area this Saturday. 

An early forecast predicts 3-to-6 inches of snow for Kansas City on Saturday.

More information from the National Weather Service:
Bitter cold will stick with us into Friday before temperatures moderate over the weekend, but with warmer temperatures will come snow.  
Expect snowfall to arrive in eastern Kansas and far western Missouri some time Saturday morning, spreading across the rest of Missouri through Saturday afternoon. This could be a long event, but snow should start to taper off by Sunday morning with all the snowfall moving to our east by Sunday night.  
Current forecast totals range as high as 3 to 6 inches due the expected length of time over which the snow will occur across Kansas and northern Missouri.  
More precipitation will be possible Monday night into Tuesday; and with warming temperatures we expect any precipitation by Tuesday to be all liquid rain.
